Matthew Wade felt scared
According to cricket.com.au, Wade said, ‘I was a little scared the night before the match. If I got up in the morning and couldn’t bat, I probably wouldn’t have played. I was afraid that if the batting came first and I could not hit the ball fast enough, it would hurt the team a lot. But it was also in my mind that if the injury was more, they would have tied me to the bed. But if the team had suffered because of me, I would not have played. Before the match, I played a few balls and bluffed the rest through it. After that he threw me a few more balls. I faced them and everything seemed fine.
